Pantone, Peach Fuzz & Puma

Pantone's Color of the Year for 2024 is Peach Fuzz and the colour "...captures our desire to nurture ourselves and others. It's a velvety gentle peach tone whose all-embracing spirit enriches mind, body, and soul." [Pantone]. As Leatrice Eiseman, Execeutive Director of Pantone Color Institute describes, " seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a colour radiant with warmth and modern elegance. A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.."

Pantone Puma Scoot Sneakers

Fashion and Pantone regularly mix, and - typically - mix very well indeed. Here we introduce Puma's Scoot Zeros Georgia Peach, a pair of sneakers that have particularly caught our eye. The first signature shoe from the NBA’s most electrifying new talent, Scoot Henderson, this pair of sneakers is inspired by his home state with such a bold colourway infused with callouts to Scoot’s personal mantra “O.D.D: Overly Determined to Dominate.”

About These Puma Peach Fuzzy Sneakers

A high-performance basketball shoe that is packed with PUMA Hoops tech like high-rebound PROFOAM EVA for the kind of end-to-end play that made Scoot a G-League superstar and a top draft pick, Puma invites you to "...reset your game with the Scoot Zeros Georgia Peach and add a little flavour to your style." On the topic of flavour, here at SATORI & SCOUT we're now wondering whether Scoot Henderson is secretly a not-so-secret fan of Pantone, though we would probably stop short in thinking that Pantone's annual colour announcement is his most easgerly awaited item of news to land his way throughout the year. That said, Puma's design team probably do and they've certainly collaborated on this pair well.

We're not affiliated with Puma on this post, but in case you're interested on the details, these sneakers boast:

  • PROFOAM: Lightweight EVA designed to cushion your landing and propel your next step
  • Reinforced Formstrip lockdown for additional durability
  • High abrasion tread pattern with non-slip rubber compounds for added traction
  • Synthetic, mesh and textile upper for a lightweight feel
  • Suede heel cap with embroidered details
  • Formstrip lockdown support
  • PROFOAM EVA midsole
  • High abrasion rubber outsole for durability and traction
  • Scoot branding

Sports isn't for everyone, and playing basketball is for even less. However, we hope you might agree that these sneakers are certainly nice-looking, and exuberant in colour, may these just tempt you to take to the basketball court sometime soon? So, about that non-affiliation with Puma. Puma, hello? Available now at Puma.
